Yeah I remember jouncing but this was more recent, even... a more modern word that the stodgy old audience just couldn't abide. 

I sometimes go to the hints/comments to see if there's more than one pangram etc., but I don't scroll down to where that one guy gives hints for every word because those are just spoilers.

People in the comments section lost their minds a couple of weeks ago when the pangram was a slang word or really a non-word like irregardless.

Part of my survive 2024 plan is to stay away from most comments sections.  I have a couple of group chats that I'm really struggling with as well. So far I'm doing pretty good. Maybe this will make me a better (or just different) person. in the interim we'll just wait and see. 

Or just possibly my strengths are elsewhere.



i don't read the comments, but that's where they post the hints every day - and sometimes they help so that's why i scroll through to look <shrug>

I'm getting frustrated with some slang/informal words working and other perfectly good words not. And sometimes foreign words are fine others not (today has a one letter variance where one works and the other doesn't). Also frustrated that I just can't find that many words or tune into this puzzle. It took me a while for connections, but I've kind of figured it out.

Several compound words - some of which I would probably use hyphens for, were I to write them.  Hyphens are out of style these days though.

i also checked out the "hints" and for some reason, they are defaulting in a different way the last 2 days, not sure i like it. harder to get to the actual hints and have to scroll through hundreds of "comments" to get to them. it's very annoying. oh, well!

16 and the panagram (although it took me about  6 tries to spell it). I'm holding at 16. Missing a bunch of the c words.


One of the C-words is nothing anyone uses ever but when you see it you'll go "ah, of course."
